    Oklahoma artist Jordan Vinyard explores our current culture using surrogate performers to ironically resolve the infractions of human behavior, not only by creating mechanical proxies, but situating them as caricatures of humans interacting with technology.

    “I think the starting point for this project was fairly unique because there was a singular incident that had been driving the entirety of it,” Vinyard shares. “I always assumed that I knew what my first memory was, which was of my twin brother and I at our fourth birthday. Recently I saw that image on a VHS tape, so I had this ‘oh my god’ moment where I started to think about how technology really does imprint on us at such a young age, so I started replacing my own body, my own work with surrogate performers.”

    Consisting of works that subtly breathe, lethargically stare at screens, and act as sardonic addendums to existence, the ultimate goal of Vinyard’s sculptures and installations is to place the viewer in a fixed dilemma as they realize themselves parallel to their prototypical counterparts.

    sportopia

    Artist Paul W. Waddell examines Oklahoma’s relationship with sports and how it has impacted our culture through his exhibit Sportopia. Waddell talks about the foundation of Oklahoma sports culture and how it has contributed to the art culture in our community as well. The connection between sports and art in Oklahoma City is unlike any other he’s experienced before.

    “This is the first time I’ve lived in a place where this stuff really matters to everybody. These sports figures are really important across a huge range of all kinds of people. It’s the only place I’ve been where the artists in the community are involved in sport. They’re participating, they’re yelling at their TVs, watching the games, and they actually care.”

    Each piece in Waddell’s exhibit is inspired by a prominent coach or athlete in Oklahoma history. “People should expect to see a number of portraits of sports guys you may recognize. It’s kind of like a Hall of Fame. I hope everyone will come out and see my attempt to connect with this idea I had, that sports are a part of the artistic culture in Oklahoma today.”

    Waddell will be signing copies of his book, “Transmorphing Utopia,” at the opening.

    “I think the starting point for this project was fairly unique because there was a singular incident that had been driving the entirety of it,” Vinyard shares. “I always assumed that I knew what my first memory was, which was of my twin brother and I at our fourth birthday. Recently I saw that image on a VHS tape, so I had this ‘oh my god’ moment where I started to think about how technology really does imprint on us at such a young age, so I started replacing my own body, my own work with surrogate performers.”

    Consisting of works that subtly breathe, lethargically stare at screens, and act as sardonic addendums to existence, the ultimate goal of Vinyard’s sculptures and installations is to place the viewer in a fixed dilemma as they realize themselves parallel to their prototypical counterparts.

    sportopia

    Artist Paul W. Waddell examines Oklahoma’s relationship with sports and how it has impacted our culture through his exhibit Sportopia. Waddell talks about the foundation of Oklahoma sports culture and how it has contributed to the art culture in our community as well. The connection between sports and art in Oklahoma City is unlike any other he’s experienced before.

    “This is the first time I’ve lived in a place where this stuff really matters to everybody. These sports figures are really important across a huge range of all kinds of people. It’s the only place I’ve been where the artists in the community are involved in sport. They’re participating, they’re yelling at their TVs, watching the games, and they actually care.”

    Each piece in Waddell’s exhibit is inspired by a prominent coach or athlete in Oklahoma history. “People should expect to see a number of portraits of sports guys you may recognize. It’s kind of like a Hall of Fame. I hope everyone will come out and see my attempt to connect with this idea I had, that sports are a part of the artistic culture in Oklahoma today.”

    Waddell will be signing copies of his book, “Transmorphing Utopia,” at the opening.

    protoproxy

    Oklahoma artist Jordan Vinyard explores our current culture using surrogate performers to ironically resolve the infractions of human behavior, not only by creating mechanical proxies, but situating them as caricatures of humans interacting with technology.

    “I think the starting point for this project was fairly unique because there was a singular incident that had been driving the entirety of it,” Vinyard shares. “I always assumed that I knew what my first memory was, which was of my twin brother and I at our fourth birthday. Recently I saw that image on a VHS tape, so I had this ‘oh my god’ moment where I started to think about how technology really does imprint on us at such a young age, so I started replacing my own body, my own work with surrogate performers.”
